The Bottom Line With the latest firmware update, the D-Link DIR-655 is arguably one of the best among single-band Wireless-N routers on the market. The good-looking D-Link HD Media Router 1000 DIR-657 is a very good router, though it doesn't offer much over the company's previous model, the DIR-655.
